Hi neighbors!

Remember that this Sunday’s block party will be from 3-7 pm at Adams and Filmore. This even is rain or shine! Please bring a dessert or a side dish to share. We hope to have Lucky Dog’s food truck there as well. Please reply if you would be willing to bring a table, and cross fingers for showers scattered far away from Glenwood Brooklyn!

Below are the meeting notes from our most recent meeting:

UDO – city council initiated HOD-S. Look for an information table at the block party to learn more about this initiative, and to get involved.

Median project and crosswalk. There has been progress on this and we will learn more about what monies are available to beautify the medians. Please keep in mind that we’ll be calling for volunteers eventually to help with the work.

Park cleanup – will be monthly. The next park cleanup date is scheduled for Saturday, June 27 from 9-10:30 am. Meet at the picnic shelter, and please RSVP by replying.

Broughton parking issue. Please look for more information about speaking to a representative of Broughton at an upcoming open forum about improving the Broughton-neighborhood relationship through better parking practices and solutions.

Neighborhood Safety. Continue to call 911 when you notice suspicious behavior. Every time, at the time.

Home Tour. An officer meeting will be before the next open forum on Tuesday, June 16 at 6 pm. Please plan to attend if you will be joining the tour committee. Please note that we need a committee of at least 4 to ensure that the tour is held this year!

Many thanks! We look forward to seeing many of you this Sunday!

We are kicking off a new group in the neighborhood designed just for the women in the neighborhood to meet each other, get together, and build a stronger community. We’ll have monthly get togethers that will give us an opportunity to partake in activities that we want to do, but that our male counterparts may not indulge us in! Ideas include Wine & Design, facial parties, and the like.

We’ll be having a kick off party on Thursday, July 10th at 6:30 pm at C.Grace Cocktail Bar. We’d love for as many ladies from the neighborhood to come as possible, as we’ll use this initial gathering to map out some ideas for what group members would like to get out of the group and to develop a list of outings and activities that we can begin planning.

We look forward to seeing everyone there, and please pass along to your friends and neighbors!
